Wedding weight loss vs running? (Read 1710 times)

    Aren't you married? What the hell does it matter what her spouse wants? As I've already said, this is her mother's wedding. The OP will get her wedding when/if she has a daughter. The groom? Seriously, if he's smart he'll just do what he's told. 

     

    Unfortunately, bride and groom are expected to show up at her mother's wedding.

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

      Which is better -- to try to lose weight to make your mother happy, or to try to lose weight to make your husband happy?

      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

          Heh, that was my entire responsibility: Show up.  And I was more than happy to accept my limited, though crucial involvement.

            ... or (3) to try to lose weight to make yourself happy and healthy?

             

            Bingo.  Or not lose weight, if that makes one happy.

                 I may not be happy if on the day of the wedding only 75% of my bride shows up.

                  What are you, the groom? You rank below the groundskeeper working outside that day. Nobody cares what you think.

                          and is true 13 years after the day as well, probably more so now.

                            Some great advice about dress sizes.  I may have to reconsider whether I can lose 20lbs in 6 months... when I put it as '1lb a week', it didn't sound hard!!

                             

                            Oh, and we are paying for everything for the wedding.  Neither of our sets of parents are well off, and we wouldn't dream of asking them to pay a dime towards it.  I agreed to do this for my Mum because I want her to be happy - it means so much to her - and I hate seeing her upset.  I don't need her approbation for me - I'm happy with who I am - but I want her to be happy for her!  She hasn't had much joy in her life lately.

                             

                            This is just my personal opinion, but I'm not a big fan of the 'I'm having MY day the way I WANT IT' attitude.  But then I've always been happiest when the people around me, who I love, are happy and enjoying themselves.  It would be worth way more than the pain of a diet to me to see my Mum looking cheerful - not because I need her to be proud of me, but because I LOVE HER AND I WANT HER TO BE HAPPY!  Some of you clearly think that's deeply messed up - but it's how I've always been!  Smile

                             If the only way your Mum will be cheerful on your wedding day is if you are 20 lbs lighter, then yeah I think that is messed up.    Doesn't she really love you?

                             

                            I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

                              If you are losing weight for your mom, that is DEFINITELY the wrong reason.  My parents will sometimes kid me about being the 'larger sister' (I have broad shoulders and an abundant chest), but the day my mom tells me I have to lose weight I would be VERY upset.

                              "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher

                               

                              "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

                                True story:  I went to a wedding where the bride had dieted to fit in to a very small dress.  She had one drink, cut the cake and passed out.  We all then spent an awkward few hours attending a wedding reception with no bride and groom. 

                                 

                                MTA:  I should add that this was a $70,000 wedding over 12 years ago.  And probably unrelated but they are getting a divorce.
